"The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us."
― Franklin D. Roosevelt

  Iconic Playgrounds

Miami Beach is well known for its attention to style and design. We want to embody that philosophy when designing new play structures for our children by inspiring creativity and imagination. Children now spend, on average, 7.5 hours A DAY in front of the TV!!! We need less TV and more activity! Let's give them a reason to go outside and play!
What would these playgrounds look like? We will choose from the best designs from around the world.  Check out some examples from  Monstrum , a famous Danish playground design company!
Fitness Clusters
Less than 5% of US adults participate in 30 min of physical activity each day. Exercising is crucial to physical and mental health. I want to give residents more opportunities to stay in shape. I am eagerly looking forward to installing fitness clusters throughout the city, so residents can workout in urban outdoor gyms while enjoying the beautiful sights our city has to offer.
  Public Bike Repair Stations
Biking isn't just an environmentally friendly method of transportation, it's a way of life for Miami Beach residents and visitors alike. As a biker myself, I know how inconvenient an ill-timed bike breakdown can be. The average biker spends $130 yearly on bike tune ups a year. Having free, all-in-one bike repair stations throughout the city will immensely improve the quality of life for cyclists in our city.
